Marguerite Golden Anthemis Sancti-Johannis is a short-lived, herbaceous perennial. Marguerite Golden seeds can be started indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, and also commonly called Orange Marguerite and St.John's Chamomile, Anthemis Sancti-Johannis produces masses of striking, orange colored, marguerite, daisy-like blooms above bushy, fragrant, ferny foliage. Golden Marguerite is an unusual, hard to find plant that blooms with yellow-orange, small sunflower-like flowers from early summer to early fall, attracting bees and butterflies to your garden.
Marguerite Golden is widely popular for growing in containers, borders, cutting gardens and flower beds. Anthemis Sancti-Johannis seeds produce a relatively drought tolerant plant that grows best in full sun and easily adapts to poor soils. Golden Marguerite is a short-lived perennial, but the plant re-seeds freely establishing itself permanently. If the faded flowers are removed regularly, it will greatly increase blooming time. Golden Marguerite makes a long lasting cut flower.
